The Presbyterian manse of about 1907 on the south corner of Roanoke and Church streets, on the bottom, is a more traditional center-passage-plan house of two stories built of brick with a hipped roof. It has a classical cornice and a central dormer, combining vernacular and popular elements in an important house. The Sheriff Camper House, seen on the top, was built on the east corner of Penn and Washington streets in about 1910. It features a unique plan, with two identical facades facing Penn and Washington streets. Both elevations feature polygonally indented central bays sheltered by projecting polygonal porches.
